Yeah, well I was expecting the 2016 movie "Ghastlies" to be a bad movie. But still I opted to sit down and watch it, hoping that it would turn out to be one of those movies so bad that they are actually fun to watch.
But that was not the case with "Ghastlies" from writer Chris Bavota and director Brett Kelly. No, "Ghastlies" was just plain and simple bad.
It felt very much like a do-it-yourself movie project found at some sketchy webpage. The writing was very simplistic, which made for a rather plain, if not actually boring, storyline. So don't expect a grand masterpiece of cinematic history here.
"Ghastlies" is labeled as a horror movie. Yeah, well I a not even going to open that can of worms.
And of course the creatures in the movie have to be mentioned. Puppets and teddy bears. And they weren't even trying to make them look like they weren't exactly just that. So it was very difficult to take it serious.
The acting in the movie was as to be expected; dubious at best. Again, when sitting down to watch a movie like "Ghastlies", of course you are not expecting award-winning performances. Needless to say that I wasn't familiar with a single actor or actress on the cast list here.
Visually then "Ghastlies" was just ridiculous. The special effects were so low budget and offkey that it was painful to witness.
All in all, "Ghastlies" is not a movie that I would recommend you waste your time, money or effort upon. There are far better low budget horror movies out there. I am rating the 2016 movie "Ghastlies" a mere two out of ten stars.
